  2. I've been asked many times "why run ultras?" and spent many hours thinking about the answer, especially towards the end of long races. There is no good answer, but here are a selecti... read more

      "the alternative is worse" struck me. it sounds as if, for some at least, ultra running is a sort of addictive behavior that covers up a deep pain or fear. i don't usually run ultras, but i ran 100-150k weeks, and i have sometimes had similar thoughts when reflecting on this passion/compulsion.

      I like the Second Dawn reason. I think if I ran 100 miles continuously, I would want to be reborn. Or at least a great day long massage!

      I agree entirely with the "no answer" response. If one has to ask why then they can't appreciate the response of needing to meet a challenge.

    A 3.8 Training Effect; way higher than Badwater's 2.6. That's a nice way of highlighting the limitations of Training Effect.

    It's interesting that the Training Effect of this run (2.9) is greater than for Badwater (2.6).

    Some easy miles to see what's broken after Badwater. Surprisingly, everything's in good shape, though the quads are a little wooden and there's some odd twinges from my right foot.

      The flush of magnesium, potassium and calcium along with the sodium under heat stress is probably the cause of the twinges, I just relax and ease up till they pass, my muscles are so tight already after Vol State 500k a good cramp, would probably end in a injury...I know Badwater had more heat, I was only orbiting the sun, not running on it like you.

      You're probably right. I did take Mg before/during/after BW, as well as K, so it should recover quickly.

  9. The time to go from the Badwater “I’m never going to run again” to “I really need to go for a run even though my body’s trashed” was about 48 hours.

  11. Finished Badwater in 35:24. Everything went well and I had the support of an amazing crew. And yes, it really is as tough as they say. I'll write up my lessons learned from the race soon.
